GLENN: Going to Cleveland and Chrissy. Hello, Chrissy, welcome to the Glenn Beck program

CALLER: I used to be a scumbag and now I'm a mom of three.

GLENN: Hello, scumbag, welcome to the program.

CALLER: I have never in my life gone online, met a stranger and then invited them over to my house to watch TV. And my husband's looking at me like I'm walking around in a Wookie costume.

GLENN: Yeah.

CALLER: And I just need some reassurance that Friday this isn't like the Guinness Book of World's Record attempt for the world's largest punt because my husband will never let me live this down.

GLENN: I will tell you, nowhere did I have to tell you that your husband may be onto something, nor did I suggest that you get people -- you know, you go to a website and just start calling people and saying, "Come over to my house." That may not be the best idea.

CALLER: Well, no, I'm going to meetup, it's all through meetup. I'm Chrissy from Worcester and you're invited to watch TV. And I don't know, there's something a little odd about that, but I'm in for it. But my husband thinks I'm an idiot.

GLENN: You very well may be. Did you have any -- are they invited over to your house?

CALLER: Yes.

GLENN: Did you have any --

CALLER: I have a cool house.

GLENN: -- conversations with these people?

CALLER: Yes, I did.

GLENN: Do you know anything about them?

CALLER: Yes.

GLENN: What do you know about them?

CALLER: I called them on the phone. Still, it really isn't sanity, you know.

GLENN: This really is on the edge. Stu?

STU: Chrissy, they have things called restaurants. You can meet them at a public place. You don't have to invite --

CALLER: Oh, you haven't seen my children in a restaurant. That would be awful.

GLENN: Really?

CALLER: Besides, I have a totally cool house. So --

STU: I'm sure it's cool.

GLENN: I'm sure that makes it even better for the people you are inviting to come over from the website!

STU: Have you ever watched 20/20? You are talking about, don't worry, it know at about big deal that I'm inviting people over to my house because it's a great house.

GLENN: Don't worry, it's totally cool. I've got so much cool stuff!

STU: I have so much stuff that can fit in their pockets.

GLENN: They are going to love it. Well, I -- the safe I'm going to leave open, I just have oodles of cash there. They can look at all the pictures of the presidents.

CALLER: (Laughing).

GLENN: Jeez.

CALLER: You are going to have a good show, right? This is a --

GLENN: I hope we're going to have a good show. Now the pressure's really on. We've got Chrissy in Cleveland who's, you know, being robbed and tied up, you know.

CALLER: Well, just, you know, I'll be 85 at the nursing home and my husband's going to be, "Remember that time you invited all the weirdos to the house?"

GLENN: Now, is he going to be home?

CALLER: (Laughing).

GLENN: No! I'm taking that as a no.

CALLER: (Laughing).

GLENN: Chrissy, Chrissy, go out this week and buy yourself a gun. Trust me.

CALLER: I have some.

STU: Let me ask you this, Chrissy. Does your home happen to have the word "Institution" after it?

CALLER: Actually my home used to be a school, like a big school.

STU: What is going on in the background? Do you have a zoo? This is the craziest phone call I've ever heard.

CALLER: It does look rather institutional.

GLENN: Okay, but it's cool.

STU: What?

GLENN: Chrissy?

CALLER: Yeah.

GLENN: I'm going to put you on hold.

CALLER: Okay.

GLENN: I'm going to get your name and address because I need you to sign a release form when you try to sue me for all the things that could happen next week.

CALLER: Well, you'll get my children.

GLENN: Oh. No, no. No, no. Hey, maybe you could sue me for my children. Chrissy, thank you so much for calling and best of luck.

CALLER: Thank you very much.

GLENN: I mean that, really.

STU: The Glenn Beck program does not advise you to invite random people over to your house with no protection.

GLENN: I want you to know I never suggested that. That's insanity.

Let me go to Randy in Kansas City. Hello, Randy.

CALLER: Thanks for taking my call.

GLENN: You bet.

CALLER: Chrissy, is it okay if I bring my goat? No, seriously, Mr. Beck, I want to thank you for what you're doing. I was one of the ones that was ready to unplug after the first of the year. I had had enough. You've given us some hope with WE Surround Them and what you're doing and your sense of humor, which is a little odd at times. But that keeps us listening. I don't know how you do it day in and day out. I know you made that comment a couple of months ago. It would drive me nuts. But I am impressed and I want to thank you for what you are doing.

GLENN: Well, thank you very much. It is -- I do it because this is my, this is my part just like you do your part. We all have to do it. We all have our role to play. We're all here for a reason. I'm lucky enough to have a great staff and great people and great listeners. But I tell you, this project that we're really unveiling next week, this is the opportunity, as I see it, this is the opportunity for you to be able to have a way to connect, a way to vent, a way to, you know, move, a way to do the things and figure out what you believe and connect with other people. And that's really what it's going to come down to is just a couple of basic points. You know, what do you believe and how many people believe it with you; are you alone. And the answer is you're not alone but you right now I think are surrounded by a lot of people that think they know what they believe but their feet aren't in cement because nobody's poured cement around those feet for a very long time. You know, I'm -- how old are you, Randy?

CALLER: I'm 48.

GLENN: Okay, I'm 45. So, you know, we're basically the same age. When we grew up, they already weren't really teaching history. But what they're now teaching is so far away from the truth, you just wouldn't even recognize it anymore.

Did anybody hear the story of the books in California where they are now favoring Islam over Christianity? I mean, it's amazing. And we look at our culture and we say, well, why are we in so much trouble.

CALLER: Well, now, what about -- they were all hollering about separation of church and state.

GLENN: No, it's just Christianity and state really.

CALLER: Oh, okay, I'm sorry.

GLENN: That you will it really is.

CALLER: My bad.

GLENN: Look, how many times -- do you have kids, Randy?

CALLER: Yes, sir, I have one.

GLENN: Okay. How many -- if I had a dollar for every time I had a parent call me or write me and tell me that their kids had to do a Ramadan thing where they had to dress up, they had to go through some of the rituals, they did this, you know, they talked about fasting and everything else, if I had a dollar, well, I'd probably only have about $100. But the point is I hear it all the time. And I don't have a problem with that. I have no problem with that. But don't tell me that we can't sing a song about the baby Jesus being born at Christmastime.

CALLER: You know, one of the things that I have noticed, it seems like a lot of the liberals, they put emotion over logic. There's a young black lady that I work with -- I'm a blue-collar worker -- she made the comment that us white guys are screwed everything up. And I was absolutely dumbfounded. I had no reply on that one.

GLENN: Well, I will. It's either tonight or it's going to be Monday on the TV show, but I have a response to that one and I'll share it with you then.

Let me just leave you with this. Everybody is working on emotion right now and that is the point. We've got to root ourselves in principles. If you don't know what your principles are, if you're running, you know, you're running a 7-11 and the back has to be cleaned up and everything's got to be stacked up, if you didn't know what your principles were, if you walk back there and you said, "Everybody, we've got to clean this up! The boss is coming, quick! Clean this up!" If you didn't know what your principles were, everyone would go and clean that up. Meanwhile there would be people stealing from the front of the store or you wouldn't be making any sales because your principle had been forgotten that we are here to sell things to customers. You've got to know what your principles are and then order things based around those principles.

This week on the Glenn Beck Podcast, Glenn spoke with Vox co-founder Matthew Yglesias about his new book, "One Billion Americans: The Case for Thinking Bigger."

Matthew and Glenn agree that, while conservatives and liberals may disagree on a lot, we're not as far apart as some make it seem. If we truly want America to continue doing great things, we must spend less time fighting amongst ourselves.

'A convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists': Why is the New York Times defending George Soros?

Image source: Simon Dawson/Bloomberg via Getty Images

On the "Glenn Beck Radio Program" Tuesday, Glenn discussed the details of a recent New York Times article that claims left-wing billionaire financier George Soros "has become a convenient boogeyman for misinformation artists who have falsely claimed that he funds spontaneous Black Lives Matter protests as well as antifa, the decentralized and largely online, far-left activist network that opposes President Trump."

The Times article followed last week's bizarre Fox News segment in which former House Speaker Newt Gingrich appeared to be censored for criticizing Soros (read more here). The article also labeled Glenn a "conspiracy theorist" for his tweet supporting Gingrich.

The former ambassador to Russia under the Obama Administration, Michael McFaul, came up with "7 Pillars of Color Revolution," a list of seven steps needed to incite the type of revolution used to upend Eastern European countries like Ukraine and Georgia in the past two decades. On his TV special this week, Glenn Beck broke down the seven steps and showed how they're happening right now in America.

Here are McFaul's seven steps:

1. Semi-autocratic regime (not fully autocratic) – provides opportunity to call incumbent leader "fascist"

2. Appearance of unpopular president or incumbent leader

3. United and organized opposition – Antifa, BLM

4. Effective system to convince the public (well before the election) of voter fraud

5. Compliant media to push voter fraud narrative

6. Political opposition organization able to mobilize "thousands to millions in the streets"

7. Division among military and police


Glenn explained each "pillar," offering examples and evidence of how the Obama administration laid out the plan for an Eastern European style revolution in order to completely upend the American system.

Last month, McFaul made a obvious attempt to downplay his "color revolutions" plan with the following tweet:

Two weeks later, he appeared to celebrate step seven of his plan in this now-deleted tweet:



As Glenn explains in this clip, the Obama administration's "7 Pillars of Color Revolution" are all playing out – just weeks before President Donald Trump takes on Democratic candidate Joe Biden in the November election.

Modern eugenics: Will Christians fight this deadly movement?

Photo by Olga Kononenko on Unsplash

Last month, without much fanfare, a new research paper disclosed that 94 percent of Belgian physicians support the killing of new-born babies after birth if they are diagnosed with a disability.

A shocking revelation indeed that did not receive the attention it demanded. Consider this along with parents who believe that if their unborn babies are pre-diagnosed with a disability, they would choose to abort their child. Upwards of 70 percent of mothers whose children are given a prenatal disability diagnosis, such as Down Syndrome, abort to avoid the possibility of being burdened with caring for a disabled child.

This disdain for the disabled hits close to home for me. In 1997, my family received a letter from Michael Schiavo, the husband of my sister, Terri Schiavo, informing us that he intended to petition a court to withdraw Terri's feeding tube.

For those who do not remember, in 1990, at the age of 26, Terri experienced a still-unexplained collapse while at home with Michael, who subsequently became her legal guardian. Terri required only love and care, food and water via feeding tube since she had difficulty swallowing as a result of her brain injury. Nonetheless, Michael's petition was successful, and Terri's life was intentionally ended in 2005 by depriving her of food and water, causing her to die from dehydration and starvation. It took almost two excruciating weeks.

Prior to my sister's predicament, the biases that existed towards persons with disabilities had been invisible to me. Since then, I have come to learn the dark history of deadly discrimination towards persons with disabilities.

Indeed, some 20 years prior to Germany's T4 eugenics movement, where upwards of 200,000 German citizens were targeted and killed because of their physical or mental disability, the United States was experiencing its own eugenics movement.

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas documented some of this history in his concurring opinion in Box v. Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky, Inc., Justice Thomas describes how eugenics became part of the academic curriculum being taught in upwards of 400 American universities and colleges.

It was not solely race that was the target of the U.S. eugenics movement. Eugenicists also targeted the institutionalized due to incurable illness, the physically and cognitively disabled, the elderly, and those with medical dependency.

In 1973, the U.S. Supreme Court handed down Roe v. Wade, which wiped out pro-life laws in nearly every state and opened the floodgates to abortion throughout the entirety of pregnancy. Since then, 60 million children have been killed. Abortion as we know it today has become a vehicle for a modern-day eugenics program.

Since the Catholic Church was established, the Truth of Christ was the greatest shield against these types of attacks on the human person and the best weapon in the fight for equality and justice. Tragically, however, for several decades, the Church has been infiltrated by modernist clergy, creating disorder and confusion among the laity, perverting the teachings of the Church and pushing a reckless supposed “social justice" agenda.

My family witnessed this firsthand during Terri's case. Church teaching is clear: it is our moral obligation to provide care for the cognitively disabled like Terri. However, Bishop Robert Lynch, who was the bishop of the Diocese of St. Petersburg, Florida, during Terri's case, offered no support and was derelict in his duties during the fight for Terri's life.

Bishop Lynch had an obligation to use his position to protect Terri from the people trying to kill her and to uphold Church teaching. Indeed, it was not only the silence of Bishop Lynch but that of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), which also remained silent despite my family's pleas for help, that contributed to Terri being needlessly starved and dehydrated to death.

My family's experience, sadly, has turned out to be more of the rule than the exception. Consider what happened to Michael Hickson. Hickson was a 36-year-old, brain-injured person admitted to a Texas hospital after contracting COVID-19. Incredibly—and against the wishes of Michael's wife—the hospital decided not to treat Michael because they arbitrarily decided that his “quality of life" was “unacceptably low" due to his pre-existing disability. Michael died within a week once the decision not to treat him was imposed upon him despite the efforts of his wife to obtain basic care for her husband.

During my sister's case and our advocacy work with patients and their families, it would have been helpful to have a unified voice coming from our clergy consistently supporting the lives of our medically vulnerable. We desperately need to see faithful Catholic pastoral witness that confounds the expectations of the elite by pointing to Jesus Christ and the moral law.

A Church that appears more concerned with baptizing the latest social and political movements is a Church that may appear to be “relevant," but one that may also find itself swallowed up by the preoccupations of our time.

As Catholics, we know all too well the reluctance of priests to preach on issues of abortion, euthanasia, assisted suicide, and other pro-life issues. We have heard that the Church cannot risk becoming too political.

At the same time, some within the Church are now openly supporting Black Lives Matter, an organization that openly declares itself hostile to the family, to moral norms as taught by the Church, and whose founders embrace the deadly ideology of Marxism.

For example, Bishop Mark J. Seitz of El Paso, Texas, knelt in prayer with a cardboard sign asserting his support for this ideology.

Recently, during an online liturgy of the mass, Fr. Kenneth Boller at The Church of St. Francis Xavier in New York, led the congregation with what appears to sound like questions affirming the BLM agenda. Moreover, while reading these questions, pictures of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, and Ahmaud Arbery, assumed victims of racial injustice, were placed on the altar of St. Francis Xavier Church, a place typically reserved for Saints of the Catholic Church.

Contrast these two stories with what happened in the Diocese of Lafayette, Indiana, where Rev. Theodore Rothrock of St. Elizabeth Seton Church fell victim to the ire of Bishop Timothy Doherty. Fr. Rothrock used strong language in his weekly church bulletin criticizing the Black Lives Matter movement and its organizers. Consequently, Bishop Doherty suspended Fr. Rothrock from public ministry.

In 1972, Pope Pius VI said, “The smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God." It seems that too many of our clergy today are enjoying the smell.

I encourage all who are concerned about the human right to life and about Christ-centered reforms in our culture and our Church to raise your voices for pastoral leadership in every area of our shared lives as Christian people.
